More than 200 tasks grouped by content strands reflect the ideals of NCTM’s Principles and Standards for School Mathematics and Curriculum Focal Points, while 60 reproducible investigations address more than one content strand and are true problem-solving applications of mathematical skills, procedures, and reasoning. The tasks can generally be completed within a short period of time, and the investigations are designed to be explored over a longer time period.
